My99 brake caliper bleed nipple size?

Hi does anyone know the size of the brake nipples on my99 foz ...

Are they M8 x 1.25 or M8 x 1.00 ?
Or different? As I've just flushed and bled the whole system and need to change the bleed nipples , there's one not sealing properly as it's old and sucking in air when using the Sealey one man bleed sytem.

Cheers
Andy

What's wrong with the old 'up down up down' method with the Mrs?






Then after she can help you bleed the brakes.

four pots are m7*1 (better with vw s/s extended versions) and so are the rears. The oem front slider calipers, aps, brembos etc are usually bigger at m10x1.


Edit: had a look online and some front sliders are m7*1 also.
